about

i just wanted to shout everyone out I was down with.
so I did.

i recorded this song in the standalone vocal booth Rez Villain built in the basement of his kids' mother's house and at the very end you can hear the light fixture fall on my head and cause me to yell in surprise and then laugh.

lyrics

Here I go ah here I go ah here I go again!
I'm naming names just so they can hear I call 'em friend!
Here I go, here I go, here I go again!
Rhymes getting doper from the time that I spend!

Ginzu, 'Buktu, Hardcore, Thesis!
Of all the cats I creep with I'm down with you the deepest.
Rockefort Loopfrog, can you keep a secret?
Anyone who fronts on you can eat shit, believe it.
Bizzy, SJ, call me an elitist
But you two are why our crew could achieve the highest
Reaches; scooby doo. I believe this to be true
The Burner is truly huge, and booty crews are booing us
But won't say boo to us, who amongst the scum could test us?
Big up Uncle Fester the drum collector and funk molestor
Drunken boxer, Dexter is none the less ill
When the blood gets spilled don't run to Fresh Kils
Who said Toolshed wouldn't leave the fools dead?
You'd better hope to rival the rhymes of Choke and Psybo
Open bibles and sing a psalm for sudden calm, what could go
Wrong? I rest my finger on buttons to bomb suckers!
Hip hop disc jocks cuttin' it up swift,
Backburner Posse ain't nothing to fuck with!
Stuck in a rut, kid? Blow your nose in a hanky
I know the dopest flower that no-one knows and it's Frankie
De-luxe, chocolate chips, don't be a greedy guts
My rocketship's dropping apocalypse now: redux
Turn the heat up til we burn the street up
Really though, yo! you want to get with it? Here we go!

Here I go ah here I go ah here I go again!
I'm naming names just so they can hear I call 'em friend!
Here I go! Here I go! Here I go again!
Rhymes getting doper from the time that I spend!

Since Cal vacated his place by the L.C.
We never see his face like Ramellzee
Rest in peace to L.B., the kid helped me keep my
Attitude healthy which filled me with gratitude
And there'll be a part of me that always can smile
About when Deza ran wild with handstyles for his man Kyle
Party Time fanned out and covered the peninsula
And for a little while, brothers stopped being so insular
Kindness came in random acts, tributes were planned and scrapped
Abandoned after all because we felt like our hands were strapped
I'm a fan of Apt and altogether fond of Kimber
Not Jem's sister, Josh's brother, come on, remember?
Man listen, it's a long transition
But we could all take a tip from blond Ambition
And build our bets with elder vets and heads still in a stroller
Backburner's for the children, word to Rez Villain and Lola
Hold the phone, I'm rolling up with solo acts from Hamilton
Like Mayor McCA, BA Johnston and Wax Mannequin
I'm adamant, euphoric, in orbit like a sattelite
With Fax4, Half Life, Squaretown and Alpha Flight
CTG, PRD, KSK, Dead Beats and Universal
Soul, I try to see us all as units of a whole.
Shooting past the goal, my city, province and nation are hotbeds
With that said, you're sure to see that courtesy is not dead.

Here I go ah here I go ah here I go again!
I'm naming names just so they can hear I call 'em friend!
Here I go! Here I go! Here I go again!
Rhymes getting doper from the time that I spend!

Now that's dedicated, so copasetic that it
Made it so that credit goes to Soso and Epic
You want it? Go and get it, climb the ramparts
Put your faith in it like mine is in my man Heartz
Spread the rumours, rock with Kassy and Lunar
I'm proud of you and you're basically Jesse D, Jr.
Who in their right mind wants to lead a life like mine?
Kids who feel light shine when they write rhymes!
Fool, please. You'll be truly schooled each
And every time you endeavour to get clever with Kool Krys
Ooowee, you want a try some lame move?
Get punched out by Kelly repping Dice Champagne crew!
Praise due to Cosmo, surely none is finer
He'll serve you on the decks like he'll serve me in the diner
Right across from the Khyber where Krista used slang booze
While crews would hang loose and watch eachother paying dues
Gordski, Drunc Ness, Jorun and Bastid spun there
And when it shut down it felt SO UNFAIR
One way or another, even if you're unaware of him
Scott Da Ros had 'em all, it's unamerican
EMC, Andrew G and Dave P bravely rhymed
And there's a lot of Dave P's so that saves me time
I can't legally rap without a permit for a fire
And if you say I don't get down with Hermit, you're a liar!
Awww shucks, it's got to be either that or you've gone
Nuts and written off society like Jon
Hut, the wrong person to wrestle with
Is Flexxman - half rapper, half messerschmidt.
Don't you believe the lie that I only hate
I won't debate that I decry cloned remakes and phony fakes
But don't sniff and cry if this is corny to say
I live and die in my pride for moves that my homies
make.
